On Friday B headed off to Jervis Bay for a kayaking expedition with some new mates. I've been watching the FB updates from one of them, who is possibly a little bemused by this strange tart 'liking' his watery adventures.

Meanwhile I arrived home on Friday evening and encountered the booby trap left for me in himself's haste to get out the door after work: he'd obviously decided not to take the folding chair that we've been houseminding for an unknown party since forever, and stashed it behind the door; that was the proximate cause of the Company partisan being knocked sideways, across the door, lodging against the pentangle mirror (purchased years ago in Christchurch & made from recycled NZ timber). I then attempted to open the door, which caused the partisan to break the hook holding the mirror, which fell onto the brass Monkey King statue underneath, which did a tricksy somersault and (luckily) ended up caught by a padded footstool thingy we keep various bits and pieces in. The mirror landed safely as well.

I now have to figure out a better place to store the partisan.

Then on Saturday I went out shopping, and when I came back I noticed a splattering of blood drops on the driveway. Come to think of it, there were drops in the bathroom as well that I hadn't noticed when I woke up. Texted B who replied that he'd gashed his head, but it was okay because (friend) had fixed it for him. Friend is a vet. I have yet to see if this involved stitches.

Oh well. I went to Penrith library on a whim, and came back with loot from their book clearance. 20 cents a book.


(I'll add the actual image to lj, I'm just not fond of what DW does to pics.

What is a Company partisan?? I tried Googling but couldn't find anything that could be knocked sideways...

Thank you! That all now makes perfect sense! I wonder why Google didn't bring that up - well, maybe they did at about page ten.

Just added you in my circle, hope you don't mind. I'm not that used to Dreamwidth but thought it's time to actually do something with it!

Your adventure with the door, Company partisan, mirror and monkey sounds like a comedy of errors! Glad you weren't hurt in the flurry:)Well done with the books, who can turn down a book bargain?
